Runners around the globe share the same passion for moving and exploring. What if we could use it to improve the lives of children in need?

The World Run unites all continents to create a better future for the explorers of tomorrow. Join the Allianz World Run and let’s collect our running kilometers for charity!

Allianz World Run – what is it?

Now a global, digital competition, the Allianz World Run initially started as an Allianz employee event. This year it is open for everyone around the globe!  

Started on July 26, for 90 days we will run, hike, and walk on 5 continents and track our local acitivites for a greater cause.

How the competition works

  • Each continent represents a separate team. A specific charity project is assigned to each team, based on the location.
  • Feel free to join any continent your heart beats for. Track your kilometers and help your team reach charity milestones.
  • Each charity milestone equals a certain amount of donations for the SOS Children’s Village located on that specific continent. An overview of the SOS Children’s Villages, milestones, and donations is available in the Allianz World Run FAQs.
